4.6.1. How associations are defined

This section describes how you can define Associations. There are two methods:

By order

CoreSight components are accessible through a Debug Access Port (DAP). The template used to access the DAP is called the ARM CoreSight Debug Port (ARMCS-DP). Any CoreSight components that follow the ARMCS-DP are associated with it. If there are multiple DAPs, the devices must be ordered this way:


  2. associated CoreSight cores


  4. associated cores.


The order of the devices listed in the Association file must match the order of devices as defined in RealView ICE Config.

By input and output attributes

Components have inputs and outputs, and when you define these connections you define the trace flow through a system.
